Construction Progress/Schedules: (Dates subject to change)
Contractor expects to start the week of 7/16 with the two crossovers located south and north of CH 14 working toward the north.
This project will construct paved crossovers on TH 169 between northbound and southbound lanes. These crossovers consist of a patch of pavement in the median that will allow traffic to cross over into the opposite lanes during construction. There are four crossover locations on TH 169 that are being installed to prepare for the larger CPT169-06 TH41/TH169 interchange project to be advertised later this summer.
Purpose & Justification
The early crossover project will ensure that the crossovers are in place when the project begins to optimize the contractor’s project mobilization on construction activities this fall/next spring and minimize traffic interference by having them constructed before the 2018 Renaissance Festival begins in August. This project will be funded in part by the Scott County Transportation Sales Tax.
